Positively Aging and Work presentation
The National Working Positive Coalition is proud to partner with The Reunion Project (TRP) and Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) on their Positively Aging initiative, through a grant from Gilead. This initiative provided the opportunity for NWPC to present on employment topics in the NOLA Regional Virtual Town Hall on July 21, 2020. As COVID-19 required changing the planned two-day in-person convening in New Orleans into a virtual 2-hour online event, it allowed for including a regional focus including Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas. Vanessa Johnson and Mark Misrok provided this videotaped session, followed by a live breakout group discussion, and the development and sharing of this Regional Employment Services and Resources Key Listings Guide.
